The Galerstein Women’s Center (GWC) has been in existence since 1996, representing gender issues in our campus and community. The Center actively promotes a prosperous and successful environment for women through mentoring, advising and professional counseling, climate assessment, lectures addressing gender diversity and social justice, leadership development, community engagement and support for girls and women in STEM fields of study, advocacy for the LGBTQ community, and development of child care resources.

The GWC is home to the only dedicated lactation space on campus for nursing mothers. We provide meeting, study space, and a lending library. We offer professional counseling services, provide diversity retention scholarships, internships, volunteer opportunities and organizational advising.

GWC initiatives are guided by the Office of Diversity and Community Engagement.

We invite you to visit the Center and find out how you can become involved.
